my problem was not fired as well. the diocese is saying the student who accused of assistant coach later changed his mine when he spoke to ryan about it. some say that sounds fishy. well, his lawyer has advised the coach not to comment due to a potential lawsuit over his firing. another bay area coach said he did not get a fair shake here. but ryan said there was a lack of supervision which leads some to believe that the coach must not have been present in the locker room when the hazing occurred. we put in a call to police. as far as getting comment from the school, all staff has been advised not to speak to reporters. back to you. >> 8:1. chevron has paid $10 million in medical claims from the richmond refinery fire last year. most of the money has gone to the hospitals paying for treatment for thousands of people. the company says it's
